Overabundance of peaches!

I spent a gorgeous afternoon at a U-Pick peach farm and find myself with 16lbs of peaches. My DH and DD made a delicious peach pie (flavoured with almond and nutmeg). Next I plan on making some cobbler, grilled peaches and peach salsa. Any other ideas?

I have recommended this tart before, even fairly recently (hey, it's peach sason); if you like almonds, this is a simple-to-make, fabulous dessert (with a homemade crust, preferably), as peach and almond flavors are great together. I don't bother peeling the peaches, as they're raw.
plus tons of threads for specific recipes (cobbler, ice cream, jam, etc); the "search" function is a wonderful thing.
If you have freezer space, set up a cobbler or deep-dish peach pie for next January. Mix your sliced peaches with sugar and a little flour and a teaspoon of Fruit Fresh so they don't turn brown. Line your baking dish with a plastic bag, pour in the peaches, and freeze. Then remove the whole thing, wrap some more, and put it back in the freezer. When you want it, it will already fit the baking dish and you can just add topping or a crust.
